IFCCI turns 40 and we made sure our Annual General Meeting reflected it in every possible way. The event commenced with a welcome note by ex-President of IFCCI - Pierre Behnam. This was followed by a presentation on IFCCI & its performance in FY 2016-17 and the launch of the IFCCI corporate video by General Secretary Payal S. Kanwar. Later, the IFCCI employment guide in association with Trilegal was launched by H.E. Mr. Alexandre Ziegler French Embassy to India, followed by the announcement of the newly elected president of IFCCI - Mr. Guillaume Girard-Reydet by our Secretary General.
This AGM was not just about meetings and launches. A special lucky draw was conducted for all members who renewed their membership for FY 2017-18 before 30th June 2017. The winning member company won an international vacation to Réunion Island.
A special segment honouring the members who supported us for 40 years and our past presidents was also conducted. Pastry Chef Sanjana Patel of La Folie Pâtisserie was felicitated for excellence in promoting French pâtisserie. This was followed by a networking dinner with cocktails.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their support in making this evening a grand success.
